So once we start making something available, it is available forever
but this is the kind of data which mirrors are not really interested
in helping us with. So since we already store all the 'raw' data on
the download server archives... I don't see any reason to store it
more often. I would rather see that someone has the scripts to create
their own images of whatever they want from archives knowing that they
have no support.
